Hi all! Maybe someone can help me with this one. I awoke yesterday with sharp shooting pain in back of my skull. I went to my regular MD, and he feels it may be nerve pain and suggested an anti-inflammatory. I tried over the counter (Motrin, Advil etc) to no avail. He suggested Celebrex, which I tried, but it really did not touch the pain. It feels like a shock, which comes and goes, intermittedly & constantly. Today I have pain on both sides of the back of my skull, and am sitting with an ice pack strapped to my skull which provides some relief. I plan on trying a hydocordone so I may get some sleep. I will call rad MD in the morning, but it is so painful,and now - frightening! Has anyone had this, or am the only "lucky" one? Lol!
